Black Sheep One  The Life of Gregory
2 Bruce Gamble Black Sheep One The Life of Gregory "Pappy" Boyington
Presidio Press 2000 0891417168 / 9780891417163 Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. Collectible history, 2000 Presidio Press. This is the first bio of legendary warrior, lover, drinker and WWll hero Gregory Boyington. Blessed with luck and stubborn independence, he lived a life that went beyond what one would expect in the most imaginative fiction. He became a Marine aviation cadet in 1936 but because of chronic indebtedness and unconventional behavior, he was "encouraged" to resign. But, before the Corps could kick him out, he signed up for a volunteer group training pilots to help the Chinese with their war with Japan. Shortly after, he returned to the U.S. and with fighter pilots in desperate need, the Corps grudgingly let him back in and promptly sent him to the South Pacific. After several setbacks, including a broken leg acquired in a drunken brawl, Boyington put together a group of fighter pilots and was fast dubbed The Black Sheep squadron. Their heroics were fast recognized and after finally being shot down and held prisoner, Boyington eventually returned to the U.S. with a hero's welcome and a Medal of Honor.

FlyBoys  A True Story of Courage, James Bradley
3 James Bradley FlyBoys A True Story of Courage
Little Brown & Co 2003 0316105848 / 9780316105842 Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. In this book the author returns to WWll and an extraordinary and totally unknown true story of courage. Over the remote Pacific Islands of Chichi Jima nine American flyers, Navy and Marine airmen, sent to bomb Japanese communication towers, were shot down. One was rescued by a Navy submarine and the others captured by the Japanese and help prisoner. Then they disappeared. When the war was over the American and Japanese government covered up everything that had happened. The records of the top secret mission were sealed and the families of the missing airmen were left to suffer and wonder. This book reveals the extraordinary story of the men. This is a story of war and horror, but also of friendship. It is about how we die and how we live. It includes the tale of one FlyBoy who escaped, a young Navy pilot named George H.W. Bush. It took yrs to research and reveal the story and for the first time it is told in this remarkable book.
